More than 100,000 festive lights adorn a house near Malmesbury to raise funds for Epilepsy Research UK.

Crowds have been flocking to the home of Michaela Swadling Stickler in Charlton who has turned her garden and house into a winter wonderland in memory of her father Ken.

Ms Swadling Stickler, 39, and her brother Gregory, of Ewen, Kemble, have been preparing it since September.

“This will be our third year and this time we have gone for lots more lights; it’s massive,” said the mum-of-one.

“We have had hundreds of people visit us – there must have been about 600 people at the weekend.”

Since her fundraising began, Ms Swadling Stickler has raised more than £25,000.

Ms Swadling Stickler’s mother Rhoda died young with cancer, leaving her, her dad and three brothers. Mr Swadling died in 2009 from epilepsy.
